Rare Iron Phosphates Combo (Elenorite, Cacoxenite, etc) Polk County, Arkansas
Very unique iron phosphate combo from Coon Creek (York Mine) , Polk County, Arkansas
Old Stock mined by Henry Delinde and the Coon Creek Association. This piece was unearthed in the 1970s, alongside Al Kidwell and others. Kidwellite was discovered during this decade of mining/exploration for iron phosphates and confirmed as a new mineral from a nearby source for iron phosphates around 1978. This is a historically important specimen with a diverse combination of many iron phosphates including Eleonorite, Cacoxenite, Rockbridgeite and others. There looks to be some pale colored Strengite as well. Much to discover in terms of microminerals and interesting aesthetics.
